"Golf is a very popular kind of sport all over the world; next year, a golf tournament will take place on the Olympic Games in Japan for the second time over the lpast hundred years. My goal is to bring the Ukrainian golf to the world level. Today it is very hard to follow the European countries and the U.S., so we will be paying attention to child golf. We will be trying to create such conditions for playing golf from youth in order that sportsmen could become champions and represent Ukraine on the international arena," he said.
The All-Ukrainian Golf Federation was established in 1997 and today has the status of the National Sports Federation. It cooperates with the International Golf Federation, European Golf Association and R&A organization.
